IUN Nursing Program Ranks 2nd in Nation for Value

Guide to Online Schools, a comprehensive online degree programs comparison guide, recently named IU Northwest’s online bachelor’s degree in nursing program the second best in the nation for value.

The 2020 rankings are based on a combination of factors, including tuition costs, accreditation status, and PayScale salary data. IU Northwest’s high ranking stems from its low annual tuition rate of just $10,896 and a mid-career salary for graduates of $106,900 per year.

Professor Linda Delunas, director of the School of Nursing, said that in addition to a strong costs to earnings ratio, what also makes IU Northwest’s program stand out is the beneficial partnership between faculty and students.

“Our faculty is highly regarded for their care and concern and the meaningful relationships they form with students, unique attributes that help students achieve success,” Delunas said. “Employers know that IU Northwest graduates are well-prepared and ready to meet the demands of the nursing profession.”

According to Guide to Online Schools, both tuition and salary numbers are representative of graduates from the subject area and degree level specified. The salary figures are median mid-career salaries of graduates, in order to show the return on investment 10 years after degree completion.

IU Northwest’s nursing programs include a traditional Bachelor of Science degree in nursing (BSN), as well as a BA/BS-to-BSN program and RN-to-BSN program. IU Northwest also offers a master’s degree in nursing Family Nurse Practitioner option. Newly approved Master of Science (MSN) tracks in nursing education and nursing administration are coming soon.
